Dortmund looks forward to 'great week' - focus on atletico

The bavarians can come! Borussia dortmund is ready for the league summit next saturday. "This is a very cool week for us," said dortmund midfielder thomas delaney after the very meek but well-deserved 1-0 (1-0) victory at vfl wolfsburg on saturday.

First atletico madrid in the champions league on tuesday, then the struggling munchner in the league. "We look forward to these games. The week after is break, that means we can give everything in these two games again."

For the first time since the 30. On the first day of the 2011/12 season, BVB is once again ahead of the record champions in a direct duel with bayern – and at that time, the black-and-yellows ended up as german champions. Only the travelling fans were singing about winning the title again on saturday, but the players and managers also know that they have a good chance of clearly distancing themselves from the bavarians with a victory next saturday. Seven points was in this case the dortmund lead over the southern rival.

"Bayern’s result today will certainly help put them under a bit more pressure," said dortmund’s sporting director sebastian kehl, who, like all borussians, had taken note of bayern’s late goal against freiburg with a mixture of astonishment and satisfaction.

While the munich team continues to be a ratsel this season, falling miles short of their own expectations, the dortmund team impresses with an imposing consistency and cold. In wolfsburg, an average performance was enough for BVB to also win in the 15. To remain undefeated in the first compulsory game of the season.

The borussia coach was pleased with the statistics, but remained true to himself even after setting this record. "There is still a lot to do. We focus on the next game ? And that is atletico madrid," said the swiss.

In general, everyone in the dortmund camp was trying not to think too much about the bavarians just yet. "As far as i know, we only play atletico in the champions league," said managing director hans-joachim watzke. "And there’s a lot coming up for us."After BVB’s impressive 4-0 win two weeks ago, the spaniards will be hungry for revenge. "There we have a rough job to do," said kehl.

But of course they are looking forward to the bayern game in dortmund, especially since a defeat at atletico would not mean a major setback for BVB in the champions league. After years of impressive munich dominance, the black-yellow team senses a chance to topple the unloved star ensemble from the isar from its throne. While the munich team disappoints week after week with its nimble football, the BVB thrills with its tempo football.

And even if the power is not there as on saturday in wolfsburg, the borussia does not get in danger. "For all i care, it can go on like this," said national player marco reus, who scored his sixth goal of the season in the 27th minute. Minute the victory. "We have a very good feeling," said delaney. How seven points ahead of the bavarians sound? "That would be cool", said the dane.
